Have you ever celebrated Christmas in July? All you have to do is step foot in Hobby Lobby to know you can pretty much celebrate Christmas year round these days. Well, my first group activity since joining The Blended Blog ladies was a Christmas in July gift exchange! Fun right? Today we are unveiling the gifts we received and I could not be more excited.
I absolutely love surprises! So much so I literally waited for over a week to open this package after it arrived. I took time to let the anticipation build and wondered what sweet and sassy Deena might have chosen for me! Finally I tore into the package like a kid on Christmas morning.
Y’all, could this pillow be any cuter? I love everything about it! The saying, the colors and the way it blends with my bedding. Such a fun reminder each day when making the bed. I’m still working on finding the perfect place to show off the teeny little pineapple lights but I’m thinking they will be perfect on the back patio.
Deena also sent me a snack from Saskatoon which was such a nice touch. I would compare these to raisins, yummy!
And she included the sweetest handwritten note with a background view of the state fair of Texas!
Such a fun mail day! I loved everything in my package Deena…you totally rocked it!
As the newest member of The Blended Blog, there is still alot for me to learn about the ladies. Poor Alison of Puppies and Pretties drew the short end of the stick with me as the giver. I am not the most creative when it comes to gifts but especially if I don’t have lots of info about someone. When all else fails send something from Nordstrom! Not creative but very easy to return if things don’t work out. Head on over to Alison’s blog to see what she ended up with. Trust me, she ended up with a lot more than her surprise from me!
Have you ever participated in Christmas in July? I’m thinking this might be a new tradition.
